A Message To Families and Visitors  

COVID-19 Response 

The families we serve and the health of the community remains our top priority.

During this confusing and concerning time, we want to share our plans with you. We want to assure you that we are all in this together.

We are closely monitoring and following all guidelines from the CDC, federal and state funeral associations, and local and state emergency services. As of Tuesday, March 17, the CDC is recommending public gatherings should not exceed 10 people. We are prepared to offer families the choice of livestream the service for remote viewing by family and friends or holding a private service at the time of death followed by a public memorial service or gathering at a later date. 

We have set in place new measures to help protect and accommodate the elderly, sick and members of the public. We will make every effort to accommodate families in making arrangements and conducting services in any capacity needed to ensure their safety and comfort while honoring their loved one. 

Arrangements can be made remotely, via email, webcast or over the phone, our staff will make in-home arrangements or hold the arrangement conference at our location.
We are expanding our offering to livestream funeral services to the public.
We encourage the use of our online guestbooks for condolence messages to the family.
We have placed reminders throughout our funeral homes to ask that physical contact, such as shaking hands or hugging, be limited with family members.
Our large gathering spaces will be set up to allow social distancing. 
We continue, as always, to provide professional hand sanitizer stations throughout our facilities and have enacted extra cleaning in all public areas. Offering only bottled water to public and family.
Please continue to

- Wash hands often with soap and water 

- Cover mouth when coughing or sneezing

- Do not shake hands, maintain a social distance of 6 feet 

- Avoid touching face 

- Stay at home and avoid contact with others 

– Schooling from home, if possible

– Avoiding gatherings of more than 10 people

– Avoiding discretionary travel, shopping trips and social visits

– Avoid social public spaces 


The best way we can help minimize the spread of COVID-19 is to follow the highly recommended guidelines set forth by the CDC, Minnesota Dept. of Health, Minnesota State Government, and affiliated health officials. We request public patience and understanding as we decide how best to minimize public interaction and spread of COVID-19. Be safe. All updates of information will be shared on our website.

Welcome to Peterson Grimsmo Funeral Chapel

Since 1933, Peterson Grimsmo Funeral Chapel has provided the area with a dignified funeral service, complete in every detail. Founded in 1933 by Harold T. Peterson, the chapel continued with second-generation son-in-law Arve A. Grimsmo and continued with third generation son-in-law, Roger A. Carlson. In the spring of 2017, Peterson-Grimsmo joined the O'Halloran & Murphy Family. O'Halloran & Murphy has been a staple in funeral service in the St. Paul area since 1876. Our mission has always been to create a true community-based funeral home: welcoming people of all denominations, nationalities, races, and financial means.

We continue that mission by maintaining the largest and most experienced staff serving the St. Paul, Roseville, Woodbury, Elk River, and Monticello areas. Our knowledge and resources allow us to go well beyond just the basics of funeral care to provide an unparalleled spectrum of services and maintaining persistent attention to detail.

Like close friends, O’Halloran & Murphy’s funeral care professionals are there when you need them most: listening, consulting and understanding, sensitive to every need. We provide sincere quality funeral care. It’s more than a way of doing business. It’s our tradition.

We would also like to invite you to visit our nearby Elk River location at Dare's Funeral & Cremation Services. Please contact us at anytime for any questions.
